Overview – Storage Analyzer


About Storage Analyzer

Storage Analyzer captures daily snapshots of all Disks and files, which are then analyzed and stored in a historical indexed database. This information is retained for any period determined by the system administrator. Main screen displays the analyses in one simplified view for the most recent date. A date control on top allows the user to do the same for any previous date for which data is available. This date control is available on all screens, except for list of files which reverts to current time, showing current actual files on NonStop. Below describes the content and the drill down options available.
Total available storage
  • On top, total available storage is shown in Terabyte, and a stacked bar shows used vs. available in both TB and percentage on mouseover.
Storage Graph Breakdown
  • The graph below breaks the storage used, by each Guardian Group ID, and displays it in the order of Groups with most used space. Y1 shows storage used in Megabyte, and Y2 shows number of files “owned” by each Group.  
    • Click on a graph point to display a new window showing the breakdown per User of that Group.
    • Click on a user on that window, to open a new window and see a list of Volumes where this used has files, and relevant statistics, such as total count, files near capacity, corrupted files, etc.
      • Click on a Volume to open a new window and see the breakdown per Subvolume.
      • Click on a Subvolume on that window, to open a new window and see a list of current files.
      • Click on a filename on the breakdown figures of that window, to carry out commands.
  • Files section in the middle displays statistics per Volume (logical).  It shows tallies of files as follows:
    • Count. Total number of files.
    • > 90%. Count of files at above 90% of configured capacity.
    • Full. Count of files at full capacity.
    • Corrupt. Count of corrupted files.
    • Licensed. Count of files with License flag set.
    • PROGID. Count of files with ProgID flag set.
    • Audited. Count of TMF audited files.
    • New. Count of files created on the displayed date.
    • New Licensed. Count of files which were licensed on the displayed date.
    • New PID. Count of files which had their ProgID set on the displayed date.
    • Old. Count of files which have not been opened for a set number of days (set by Admin).
    • Unused. Count of files which have never been opened.
Content may be sorted for any column, and you may click on any non-zero number to see the list of files for that category. By default, information displayed is for All files. There are two other options displayed on the Tab displayed above the grid:
  1. Only mine – Limit the display to only your (based on the user ID you used to logon to Web ViewPoint) files.
  2. Only for – Displays a field where you can type in and submit a Guardian user id (Group.User). The list is then displayed to the files belonging to the user you specified.
You may click on a Volume name displayed on the table, to open a new window which displays the breakdown of all files on that disk, per Subvolume. Click on a Subvolume on that window, to open a new window and see a list of current files in that Subvolume. Click on a filename on that window to select and carry out simple file commands.
